Love Metal: The Perfect Winter Soundtrack

Finland has always had a thriving music scene across the years, from surprise Eurovision winning metallers Lordi to million selling Operatic Metal icons Nightwish. However one of the biggest success stories is the fantastic H.I.M (His Infernal Majesty). The band spent years honing their craft across Europe with their own unique style of "Love Metal" which combines the dark tones of Black Sabbath-esque riffs with the romantic storytelling lyrics of frontman Ville Valo. Having found much of their success in the early 00's with help from Jackass star Bam Margera sporting their "Heartagram" logo in tattoos and clothing, the band have become a worldwide success gracing arenas and festival stages across the globe. Recently we picked up a fantastic collection of H.I.M items, including box sets, shaped picture discs, deleted singles, and more. Below is just a few of the highlights.

Probably the single that garnered the most commercial attention for the band, and propelled them into the big time. A fantastic collectors item, something that people are usually reluctant to part with, so this should not be missed out on, and is an essential part of any H.I.M collection!
